Spokane Police: Burglary Suspect Busted WEARING Stolen Property!

SPOKANE POLICE DEPT. PRESS RELEASE: The Spokane Police Patrol Anti-Crime Team (PACT) arrested a Repeat Offender Tuesday night for multiple felony charges related to a residential burglary that occurred earlier in the day. The victim had thousands of dollars in property stolen, including his truck and a handgun, from his home in northwest Spokane.

Corporal Oien tried to stop a red Ford Explorer near Sanson and Mayfair, when the two male occupants got out and fled. Ofc. Hamilton and K9 Leonidas conducted a track and located one of the suspects, 35-year-old Grant Brough. Brough, who is also a known gang member, had two different illegal drugs on him as well as items taken from the burglary. Ofc. Kernkamp had taken the earlier report and noticed the Explorer contained multiple items from the burglary.

About four hours later, Ofc. J. Anderson located the victim's stolen truck in a parking lot near Napa and Fairview. Ofc. Kernkamp was able to drive the victim to his truck so he could take it home.

Brough was booked into the Spokane County Jail for a misdemeanor warrant and six felonies; Residential Burglary, Theft of a Firearm, Theft of Motor Vehicle, 1st Degree Possession of Stolen Property, and two counts of Possession of a controlled Substance.

In the last 19 years, Brough has repeatedly been arrested and convicted for property crimes including burglary, vehicle prowling, theft, and possession of stolen property. He has been entered in the Repeat Offender Program (ROP), where judges typically place higher bonds on charges and tougher sentencing guidelines.

This incident and other possible related burglaries are still under investigation. Citizens, please remember the importance of documenting your valuable items using photographs and serial numbers when you can.
